4chan users claim hack of Hunter Biden's iCloud account, start leaking alleged screenshots
The content could not be verified by Just the News
A trove of alleged messages and photos from Hunter Biden's phone was posted by users of the website 4chan on Saturday night after they claimed to have hacked the first son's iCloud account.
Moderators on 4chan quickly removed the content, The Washington Examiner reported, but users keep reposting the materials on the anonymous image board.
The content could not be verified by Just the News, but 4chan users posted alleged images of text messages involving drug use, money transfers, guns and even a screenshot of what appears to be President Joe Biden's personal phone number, under the contact "Pedo Peter."
One user even posted Hunter Biden's allegedly inappropriate search history.
"4chan has already created torrents for the Hunter Biden iPhone and iCloud backups and are now seeding them. That means even if 4chan gets shut down the copies will still be out there," Human Events Senior Editor Jack Posobiec wrote on Twitter shortly after the reported leak.
"The Anarchist Handbook" author Michael Malice wrote: "The #4chan Hunter Biden dox sure reminds me, a dinosaur, of how @DRUDGE became a household name reporting on Monica Lewinsky while the corporate press was trying to look the other way (and then twisted themselves in pretzels wondering whether and how to acknowledge him).
"I dont know how the corporate press, which reduces Pride month to mimosas, kissing and walking around shirtless, is going to report on Hunter having his Dad stored in his contacts as Pedo Peter. There's too much there for them to integrate it into their narrative," he said.
"Can we talk about how Biden is polling as the least popular president of all time and also that his son refers to him as Pedo Peter?" The Post Millennial's Ian Miles Cheong said on Twitter.
The alleged nickname "Pedo Peter" comes after Joe Biden asked his son to call him using the pseudonym "Peter Henderson," a fictional KGB spy in Tom Clancy novels, The New York Post reported.
The leak comes shortly after a leaked video from Hunter Biden's laptop allegedly shows him smoking and drinking naked at a detox program after asking his father for money to help him pay for rehab.
